The studio is basically one room that is perfectly sized for recording soloists (for example, I recorded Jim Walker's bamboo flutes and Peter Maunu's acoustic guitars for "Picture Bride" here), though the room has held as many as five vocalists comfortably. Remodel construction by Rev. Michael LeBlanc. Stay tuned for updates, in progress!
